HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Willerby and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Willerby property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Willerby property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be painted over asbestos ceilings being found in house. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. Some types are found in the building materials for example ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire blankets. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to remove it and professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Willerby Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should verify when purchasing a building in Willerby in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Willerby surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the bearing may have on the building. The value of homes will likely be more than prices outside the area because of the areas retaining their original character.

Property surveyors are trained to report if the property looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of the Willerby Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a residential property built Slate. What potential issues should we be aware of?

Maintenance costs for stone-built property in Willerby can be higher than for more standard. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. Repair advice often includes replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
